"Black Sky" (Eternal Hate Records; 2015)
Reviewed by Jeff Rogers
Amenize are metal and they hail from Sao
Paulo, Brazil. They have influences: Slipknot, Sevendust and oh, yeah, the lead
dude, Bruno Corey, can croon like Chris Cornell from Soundgarden. He can also
growl like the devil and this is a concept album about how we are controlled by
invisible forces. This is some good stuff. It's heavier than wet carpet!
This is their sophomore album. Their first, "When Angels Turn Into Demons" (also a concept album about the story of a former elite soldier who survived the horror of war and struggles to contain his own fears and delusions) was unleashed in 2010. They were a trio then but now they've added "The Stranger" on bass and this band is solidified.
The sound on "Black Sky" is heavy, no doubt, but its also melodic with a twist of djent in a few places and some just up-in-your-grill guitar work. Never predictable but always predominate, this band will surely find a place in your collection.
Amenize: Bruno Corey - Vocals; bRain - Guitars; The Stranger - Bass; Danilo Cruz - Drums.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
